How does a flag become a beacon for belonging and community?
Jun 16, 2023
In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, we invite staff members, artists, and special guests to share personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here we take a closer look at the history of Gilbert Baker’s Rainbow Flag, and how it stands as an enduring symbol of hope.
Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each month. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
UNIQLO is MoMA’s proud partner of #ArtForAll.
